As a director, I couldn't have been happier than to have my film receive clearance for release," director Shaad Ali said in a statement.  "It is probably after a decade that an Indian film will release in Kuwait without any cuts or mutes. It is heartening that our labor of love will be screened in Kuwait and in territories across Pakistan," he added. The movie, which also features Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles, minted Rs 3.25 crores in India on day one. The film is produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Chitrangda Singh, and Deepak Singh.
